FYI, it's no. 88

88.x.y
Trinity Hall
Darty
Dublin 6

x is the floor, y is the room number

Personally, I'd go for something like:

Miss Stephanie Hamilton
88 Trinity Hall
Dartry
Dublin 6

Far more personal.

X is actually the apartment number, y is the room number. I.e. 88.8.1 is apartment 8, room 1, house 88

Damn modernists. Another fine example of tinkering with continuity.

Come on. It's hardly a house now.

The Provost lives in a house. Even then, you don't refer to his gaff as "house 1" Grafton Street.

Just in case the mail staff don't know what number you live in and the post man doesn't know that Tit Hall is on Darty Road...

you know you're an awful troll...
OP asked what their postal address is, so we told them what the address is. Provosts address is grafton street, if you write a letter to the students union for some reason, the address is
Trinity Students' Union
House 6
Trinity College
Dublin 2.
Just because you can't get your thick skull around it, doesn't mean it's necessary to change it for someone like you.

I prefer

Students' Union
6 Trinity College
Dublin


The "2" is totally unnecessary (how could you miss the only Trinity College in Dublin 2?) As is "house" (it's not a house).

I suggest you go over to the mail office and ask them what is the clearest and most well-known college addressing system.

Postcodes are quite necessary if you dislike your mail taking longer to get delivered.

Handwritten addresses are read by computer vision and passed to and passed to another program which can resolve address string sequences to GPS coordinates. The postman then collects a bag full of mail specific to his area. Very hard to find ambiguity of location with "Trinity College/TCD/Trinity College, Dublin". Welcome to the 21st century.

I dare you to send a postcard to X Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland when you're next on holidays. If you're particularly pernickety about these matters, I suggest you send two and compare the results. Let me know how you get on.

I bet you could send your postcard to "X, Trinity College Dublin" and it would get there.

It would, but you forgot the comma.
